Vintage Reproduction Quilt

This quilt has been laying dormant for awhile after I shoved it guiltily into the "half done projects" basket a few months ago. (hangs head) I pulled it out recently and decided to finish it. Its based on my great grandmothers quilt we lost in the fire. I really loved that quilt so I wanted to make one that was similar. I used almost all vintage fabrics and the green fabric is almost the same color as my great grandmothers. I decided to hand tie quilt it too.

Happy Valentines day!

I went fabric shopping this past weekend with friends, got a lot of good stuff and may have spread the fabric addiction to one of my best friends. :)  Found this Amy butler print and decided I was going to try to plunge into sewing clothing and make myself a skirt. It wasn't much of a plunge, because all that it took to make this was some elastic and straight sewing. I used this tutorial and seriously anyone can make this, it took me about 30 minutes in all.  
Hope you all are having a good Valentines day!!
